I can’t even remember how I found out about The Webster, but I know once I did it became one of my must visit places here in Miami. I finally got to visit this week. I think I chose the perfect time for my 1st visit because they were having a presentation by The Last Magazine, called The Last Space. The Webster gives me a very New York vibe, it’s like I’m in Soho but still with a distinct Miami flair. This place is 3 levels of heaven basically, Lanvin, Celine, Acne…they carry everything you could want here. I was greeted by Soraya who is the Womens RTW and Accessories manager. She’s very hospitable and told me about their current promotions and about special items of interest but in a unobtrusive way. I had an eye for jewelry that day but their jewelry selection is surprisingly small.They have a very extensive collection of everything else though. My friend Carolina met me there, and mentally wishlisted all the Balmain and the Celine Python Bag (Resort 2011) which is even better in person than I thought.
All I ended up buying was the Takashi Murakami/Britney Spears issue of Pop magazine (Claudia who was impeccably dressed, rang me up). I have such a weakness for magazines I really can’t resist but I behaved and only bought one. I’m behind on reading the ones I have so I’m on a magazine ban but I can’t resist Pop. After moving back from NYC back to Orlando, I found it difficult to buy my favorite magazines unless I bought them online. Now I know if I happen to be at The Webster I can pretty much find all my favorites. My friend (who was so excited to find men’s Lanvin fyi) bought some Lanvin on his most recent visit to Miami and received a email thanking him for his patronage essentially. I didn’t get asked for my email address (I’m sure because all I bought was a magazine) but that’s okay, I’ll be back.
Below you can find some photos from The Webster and also a few from The Last Space Exhibit. The Fashion director Alastair McKimm (sidenote: omg I met Alastair McKimm! if you don’t know) informed us that the pieces from the exhibit are all featured in the current issue (no5) of the magazine.
